Fwd: ACM JOCCH Special Issue Call for Papers on Evaluation of Digital Cultural Resources

Jonathan Morgan
Looks to be an interesting venue for people doing Wikipedia research with a
focus on cultural heritage (esp. GLAM/WikiLoves research?). Manuscripts are
due November 30, and it looks like they accept several types of submissions
<http://jocch.acm.org/authors.cfm#type-of-papers>.

ACM Journal on Computing
and Cultural Heritage (JOCCH)
*Special Issue on Evaluation of Digital Cultural Resources*

Guest Editors
*Maria Economou*, University of Glasgow, UK
*Ian Ruthven*, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK
*Areti Galani*, University of Newcastle, UK
*Milena Dobreva*, UCL Qatar
*Marco de Niet*, University of Leiden Library, The Netherlands
------------------------------

*Scope and Context*

Digital technologies are affecting all aspects of our lives, reshaping the
way we communicate, learn, and approach the world around us. In the case of
cultural institutions, digital applications are used in all key areas of
operation, from documenting, interpreting and exhibiting the collections to
communicating with diverse audience groups. The communication of
collections information in digital form, whether an online catalogue,
mobile application, museum interactive or social media exchange,
increasingly affects our cultural encounters and shapes our perception of
cultural organizations. Although cultural and higher education institutions
around the world are heavily investing on digitization and working to make
their collections available online, we still know very little about who
uses digital collections, how they interact with the associated data, and
what the impacts of these digital resources are.

The issue seeks to address this gap by bringing together interested parties
from a range of disciplines (e.g. digital heritage, museology, information
studies, digital humanities), practices and sectors to discuss the latest
developments on evaluating the use of cultural digital resources.

*Topics and Themes*

The issue will appeal to academics and practitioners working in a range of
disciplines: cultural heritage workers, arts professionals and scholars
interested in issues relating to digital resources and their impact upon
curation, education, engagement and outreach. We invite submissions of both
theoretical and practical approaches, efforts and trends in this emergent
field presenting innovative research. Topics and issues to be addressed
include but are not limited to:

   - Who uses digital cultural resources, where, and how these resources
   changed the consolidated working practice
   - Addressing diverse users' needs and expectations (i.e. from
   schoolchildren and families to students and researchers)
   - Assessing impact, use and value of digital cultural resources
   (methodologies, approaches and issues)
   - Ways of recording and assessing impact and value
   - Models of access to digital collections
   - Evaluating participatory models of work in digital cultural heritage
   (crowdsourcing, citizen science, co-creation, co-curation)
   - Moving from impact to value when assessing digital resources
   - Use of evaluation data in the curation of digital collections
   - Integrating evaluation when working with communities in digital
   cultural heritage
   - Adapting old and testing new innovative methods when evaluating
   quality, use and effectiveness of digital cultural resources
   - User studies
   - Metrics, webmetrics, infometrics and usage statistics
   - Evaluating emotional impact in digital heritage
   - Research on impact of social media on the usage of digital cultural
   resources

*Organizers*

The idea for this special issue arose from the activities of the Scottish
Network on Digital Cultural Resources Evaluation (ScotDigiCH) (
scotdigich.wordpress.com/
<https://orange.hosting.lsoft.com/trk/click?ref=znwrbbrs9_6-16b81x312d8cx04742&>),
funded by The Royal Society of Edinburgh in 2015-2016, and particularly
from the discussions and papers presented at the International Symposium on
Evaluating Digital Cultural Resources (EDCR2016) which took place in
Glasgow in December 2016 (scotdigich.wordpress.com/events/symposium/
<https://orange.hosting.lsoft.com/trk/click?ref=znwrbbrs9_6-16b81x312d8dx04742&>).
ScotDigiCH is coordinated by Information Studies at the University of
Glasgow in collaboration with The Hunterian at the University of Glasgow,
Glasgow Life Museums, the Moving Image Archive of the National Library of
Scotland and the Department of Computer and Information Science at the
University of Strathclyde.

This focused issue arises from the work of ScotDigiCH but invites
submissions from all researchers and cultural heritage practitioners
working in this area.

*Paper Submission*

Papers submitted to this special issue for possible publication must be
original and must not be under consideration for publication in any other
journal or conference. Previously published or accepted conference papers
must contain at least 30% new material to be considered for the special
issue.

Accepted papers will be published in the *ACM Journal on Computing and
Cultural Heritage*. Papers will be reviewed following the journal's
standard review process. Please follow the format instructions for the
journal (jocch.acm.org/authors.cfm
<https://orange.hosting.lsoft.com/trk/click?ref=znwrbbrs9_6-16b81x312d8ex04742&>).

Leila Zia
[with volunteer hat on.]

Thanks for sharing this, Jonathan. I was too busy the first time it arrived
in my inbox, but you tempted me now. ;) Indeed I'm very interested for us
to start publishing some of the work we do for Wiki Loves Monuments [1] in
this or similar venues. With WLM being in full swing now, it will be hard
to commit to the November 30 deadline.

There is a lot to be shared from that space in peer-reviewed
journals/conferences. /me craves for more time. :D

Best,
Leila
